solicitation rfi for the development of the system that will pull real-time information from all the dispatch services that will basically provide the framework for the creation of a universal app so that just as members of the public have said, people through an app, developed by third-party, would have his ability into all the taxis out there. i concur wholly but that is something absolutely needed, probably the single most important thing we need to do to strengthen our taxi industry. we have issued that rfi; responses were due on november 30th, we may have extended that a bit. the belief is that based on the information that we get,
3:38 pm
we may alter the requirement that we have for electronic data, the current deadline for which is december 31. we are requesting your authorization to extend the deadline for the collection of electronic data by two months, so we have an opportunity to refine what we have asked for. similarly extension for the same two months for the backseat monitors because we have not completed developing the standards for which the monitors need to apply. it's really a two-month extension. it doves tail with the structure that we are working to develop, creating the space for those apps to be developed. is extremely important. c>> and the rfi look like dispatch information, but the
3:39 pm
information we are in looking is not just the dispatch center but the gps so we know where the cabs are. we are going from a bottleneck at the dispatch center, formerly with the phone, and upgraded with some degree by texting and apps, to a system where we know where all the cabs are, it will require regulatory changes. it is being done because director reiskin and staff are requesting information for more major and significant change. since i'm going -- let me say this, -- i think the transition from prop k to a leased medallion systems complete. it was painful. i appreciate people showing up
3:40 pm

3:41 pm
at our next board retreat i would like to dedicate time to taxis. it has taken us a long time to make the regulatory changes that we make today in a few meetings and now we are poised to make service changes. i councilman director reiskin to conclude this early in his term; there are a lot of things that can be done ranging from the proposal to close market street so the cabs can have a corridor that can use to a -- ranging to stealing from some of the best ideas from uber which we had before but we did not have before such as dispatch premiums so when the driver picks up a call they get paid for the time spent dead-heading to a house. and bring it full circle to this item, some sort of dispatch system that brings us into line with what they're doing. i will tell you, the reason uber is successful is not
3:42 pm

3:43 pm
